Solve Your Indoor Insect Problems with Venus Fly Traps

Casa Quickie: Venus Fly Traps Control Insects in a Snap


Having windows and doors wide open is a wonderful sign of Summer, but opening up your home to the outside is a sure way to let pesky critters in (even with screens). One solution that has worked wonders in my home is by investing in a Venus Fly Trap. These fantastic little carnivorous plants will not only be your first line of defense against house flies, fruit flies, spiders, and other creepy crawlers, but they're also quite beautiful too. I got my Fly Trap for $15 from Amazon and simply placed in a glass bowl with some Sphagnum moss. Not only does it looks stunning, but I'm thrilled each time I see one of its traps closed tight because that means one less bug for me to take care of! Plus, it's a lot of fun to watch — you may even find yourself searching out insects just to feed it.

Word of advice: If you get one, put it out-of-sight when you are having a party. Otherwise, after your friends have a few cocktails, they might experiment feeding the plant the appetizers you put out for the party. Or maybe I just need more mature friends.

I think my childhood fear of Little Shop of Horrors might cause me to hesitate on this one, but it is a cool idea
